Storms bring heavy damage to N. Texas
DALLAS (AP) — Thunderstorms brought hail and high winds to North Texas, knocking down trees, breaking windows and damaging roofs.
National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Mosier says they believe storms moving through counties south of Dallas got winds from 70 to 80 mph.
Jack Snow, Johnson County’s emergency management coordinator, says several homes there have roof damage.
John Rodgers, Waxahachie Fire Department battalion chief, says that in the city about 30 miles south of Dallas there is “sporadic structural damage all over the city.”
He says the roofs of several businesses downtown were blown off. Also, the roof of a hotel north was damaged.
An Oncor spokeswoman says that there are about 75,000 outages from the north Texas Storms.
Several schools in storm damaged areas delayed school start times by a few hours.
